The lady who works the main building is awesome! She sounds like Paula Deen. She knows a lot about cotton and the history. Nicely restored buildings and old cotton gin. Hands-on separating cotton seed from cotton. Beautiful setting with large pecan trees and benches. Free.

We were passing through and didn't have time for the full tour but this little museum has so much to offer. The woman working in the gift shop was very gracious and helpful. We will definitely plan a longer visit on our next trip.
